Nourish Your Body, Save Your Life
Almost everyone has heard the saying “You are what you eat.” However, many people do not realize how true this saying is. The body is constantly making new cells. When these cells are properly nourished, your health improves.
An Ayurvedic proverb sums up the importance of a healthy, well-balanced diet. “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” Research has shown that chronic diseases can be prevented and reversed with good nutrition. Diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes, result from poor lifestyle choices and a poor diet. For this reason, it is essential that you eat healthy to achieve optimal health and mind-body wellness, one bite at a time.
